In Western Australia “A Mandurah private school, which receives millions of dollars every year in taxpayer funding, has told the father of a seven-year-old girl she would not have been welcome had it known her parents were gay.”
The father states “I don’t want her to be told that I’d go to hell, not that they ever did, but it is their belief, and I didn’t want her to be told that love is only between a man and a woman.”
The school’s principal “Mr Newhouse, a candidate for Family First in the 2013 Federal election, denied the family was driven from the school, but confirmed children of same-sex parents were not welcome and accused Brendan of concealing his sexuality during the interview process.
”’When the father submitted his application for enrolment, he did so with his ex-wife as part of the process,’ the principal said. in a statement provided to the Mandurah Mail.” http://www.mandurahmail.com.au/story/3454887/gay-dad-not-welcome-at-mandurah-christian-school/?cs=288
The article has raised several points but only a few will be discussed here.
Firstly the school should NEVER HAVE accepted taxpayers funds. Accepting these funds will certainly put the school under the government’s guidelines which will most probably include no discrimination on one’s sexual preferences.
Secondly the theological beliefs of the school are now going to be challenged.
Thirdly why did this father bring his ex-wife rather than his “partner”? Or why didn’t this father bring both his ex-wife and partner to the meeting for his daughter’s enrollment? My own personal opinion is that he already knew the position of the school on this subject.
Fourthly it is very evident that it is NEVER an Islamic school that is confronted by the homosexual agenda! Why?
The sodomite crowd have an agenda and that agenda is against Christians, God and the Bible.
“A PUBLIC primary school has come under fire for allowing Muslim students to walk out of assembly while the national anthem is being sung.
Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School principal Cheryl Irving said she was allowing Shi’a children to opt out of singing or listening to the anthem because it was a religious month of mourning and they should not be forced to take part in joyous events.” http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/fury-as-muslim-students-allowed-to-walk-out-of-assembly-during-national-anthem/story-fni0cx12-1227583278175?sv=25b6f46627b223fb59f60260064485b&utm_source=The%20Telegraph&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial
The following is from the school’s web site. “The caring and multicultural school community works to enable all individuals to realise their personal and academic potential in a challenging learning environment which values inquiry, perseverance and reflection. Academic success is highly valued, along with a strong belief that the all-round development of each individual child is vital. We act with integrity and treat one another with respect, learning together as responsible global citizens. For 52 percent of the children, English is not the main language spoken at home. A significant number of children were born in New Zealand, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan with Dari, Krio, Samoan, Spanish, Polish, Arabic, Malayam, Tamil, Hindhi, Konkani, Punjabi, Sinhalese, Khmer and Oromo as some of the many languages spoken.” http://www.cranbournecarlisleps.vic.edu.au/?page_id=50 NOTE the word “multicultural” and that 52% of the homes from which the students come DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH! I think I would be looking for a new school!

Well, this 30 year old man who was professed to be a Christian won the Australian Idol a few years ago but now says “…he still believed in God, but is more informed about religion than he was in his youth.” Of course now his “…views are more based on life and discovery and research than just what I’m told,’”. It shouldn’t come as a surprise then that “Sebastian also spoke out in favour of gay marriage.” What’s new when one runs in and with the world?
http://focusonjerusalem.com/newsroom.html PROTESTANTS NO LONGER MAJORITY IN US October 10, 2012 – Edited by DCB) – Why would anyone be surprised to hear that “For the first time in its history, the United States does not have a Protestant majority”. One basis for this is “The number of Americans with no religious affiliation is on the rise. The percentage of Protestant adults in the US has reached a low of 48 percent, the first time that Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life has reported with certainty that the number has fallen below 50 percent. The drop has long been anticipated and comes at a time when no Protestants are on the US Supreme Court and the Republicans have their first presidential ticket with no Protestant nominees.” There are other reasons given in the poll but the sad fact is the America people have lost any spiritual mooring they once had.

Wow, this research says what a Bible believing Christian already knew! However, I don’t think this research will go very far in the mainline media.

What the senator said was, that legalizing same sex marriage would lead to other things such as bestiality. Oh the uproar in and out of his own party. “Shadow attorney-general George Brandis repudiated the comments as injudicious and inappropriate…” Malcolm Turnbull, or is it Turncoat, “…described the Bernardi bestiality speech as extreme and hysterical.” Turncoat said “That is the worst sort of slippery slope argument” for “They’re not the views of mainstream Australian society, let alone of the Liberal Party.” That is a sad commentary on the supposedly conservatives in Australia!!!!
http://www.rightwingnews.com/ This quote refers to the American government but could be applied to the Australian government as well. “When a federal government regulates the grip size for a bicycle yet ignores a flood of illegal immigrants, we have entered the twilight zone.”

This is just one reason the state of New South Wales has a budget black hole! Even an atheist should see this is a waste of taxpayers’ money.
